Tony Dorsett Discusses NFL Concussion Settlement

Former Dallas Cowboys running back, Tony Dorsett, spoke to reporters in a telephone conversation after news came on last Thursday, August 30, that a $765 million dollar settlement amount had been reached between the National Football League and former players in the concussion-effects lawsuit. Dorsett 59, is one of at least 300 former football players who sued the league, claiming the NFL pressured them to play with concussions and other injuries and then failed to help them pay for health care in retirement to deal with those injuries.
